The Tau model is very, very nice! Thanks for showing it. The Tron style works so well with the model.

I agree. The tron style would work very well on tau. I am impressed with that necron too. They are another army that might work with the tron style painting.

That looks awesome, and also I'm loving what you did with the energy on the gun.

Like this. I went for a rougher look on purpose but most styrofoam can be sanded to a smooth surface, then painted and glossed.
Amazing, that literally looks like Glass (A bit rougher, but you did say it was on purpose).

And as for the models, I couldn't contain myself... i gotta post it, it comes from the same link I posted before. I'm starting to really think about creating a Tau army right after my 1st Space Marines.

haha, wow, these are all really interesting. Looking at that link i think the highlights would have to be crisper for Tron-themed space marines but teh Tau minis lend themselves well to this sytle. Makes me want to give it a go!

I wish the models actually had all the bits on rather than in piles, but those look nice. The blue and orange don't seem as vivid as the first pic though.

Very vibrant blue there projectda. I especially like the lining on the tank.

Tron painting would be even cooler if you used glow in the dark paint.

I haven't used it but I know its out there.
